How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Bernie was brought in to a high-risk shelter as a young adult intact male with a serious hind-leg injury, a heart murmur and a genetic condition that caused him to be nearly blind. Despite his clearly having had a rough start, Bernie’s incredibly sweet and mellow personality touched the shelter staff and they reached out for this unlikely candidate to go to rescue. Three surgeries later, Bernie and his an unwaveringly kind and happy attitude found a home. He moved into a home with two other rescue cats and family with a young boy. Bernie curls up every night with a pillow sewn just for him, cuddling his favorite toy and holding hands/paws with his new best friend.
